USC-Beaufort says, "The General Education curriculum is designed to provide USCB students with a well-rounded education. ... This program of study, to be completed largely during the student's first two years at the University, serves as a foundation for later upper-division work within the student's major. It also ensures that students who successfully complete the General Education program have a broad, well-rounded education that will enable them to succeed in their future studies or the workplace and more fully understand their place in the world and get the most out of life.
